Carola Bauckholt Lecture + Discussion

With a Keen Ear - Examples of own compositions

 

A central theme of Bauckholt's work is the examination of the phenomena of perception and understanding. Her compositions often blur the boundaries between visual arts, musical theater and concert music. She is especially fond of using noisy sounds, which are often produced by unconventional means (such as extended instrumental techniques or bringing everyday objects to the concert hall). It is important to note that these noises are not just part of some kind of a predetermined compositional structure, but rather they are carefully studied and left free to unfold and develop at their own pace lending the compositions their own unique rhythm.

Market strategies at the beginning of the career

Workshop-meeting with Uli Fussenegger

for composers as well as ensembles/instrumentalists

 

Strategies for the transition from study to professional career

Ideally, the transition from studying to the life as professional musician is fluid. There is no set of rules, the content in the field of contemporary music is just too individual. However, there are strategies for composers as well as performers (and everyone in between) to support and accelerate the transition.

Giorgio Netti Lecture + Discussion

What is an instrument?

 

They have always accompanied our making music, transforming it and being transformed by it. As tools, as actors with extraordinary longevity, as specific places of the entire acoustic space.
After listening to the composers' reasons, we will try to reverse the perspective to hear what the instruments themselves may have to tell us about music and composing.
